Plurals are allowed, but no foreign words or words beginning with a capital. There’s at least one five-letter word. Good 9 Very Good 12 Excellent 15 SUDOKU 330 Fill the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 to 9. HOW TO PLAY It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2017 KenKen Puzzle LLC.

The Star 43 Fashion Latest Christchurch news at www. Paisley is back and here to stay .kiwi Thursday March 16 2017 DECORATIVE: Paisley can be tone on tone in subtle understated colours. Take care with skinny jeans SKINNY JEANS and parka jackets are fuelling an epidemic of back pain among women, health professionals suggest. The British Chiropractic Association said three quarters of women had suffered from back pain, with fashion choices adding to problems. They singled out skinny jeans, large fluffy hoods, cross-body bags and statement necklaces as causing particular strain. Tim Hutchful, a BCA chiropractor, said: “I am FiNal sUmmer clearaNce Prices slasheD 40% OFF • Pyjamas • Night gowNs • DressiNg gowNs • selecteD Bras Shop 48 Barrington, Barrington Street Phone 03 337 6609 www.lingerieonbarrington.co.nz always surprised at how many of my patients are unaware that their clothing and accessories can affect their back health and posture, and equally how many decide their outfit choice outweighs their pain. “Some of the most popular items of clothing can have a hidden health impact. While overloaded and heavy handbags are common culprits, skinny jeans can also wreak havoc – they restrict free movement in areas such as the hips and knees, affecting PAISLEY IS back again. The perennial design has returned many times since first becoming popular with westerners in the 1800s. Although the “paisley” pattern is a droplet-shaped motif of Persian origin, its western name comes from the textile town of Paisley in Scotland, where the designs were produced for the British and American market. The pattern is still popular in Iran and Central Asian countries where it is known as “boteh.” The woven design often features silver silk threads and other luxury textiles for gifts, weddings and clothing for special occasions. Alternatively it is also seen as a decorative motif on pottery, curtains, carpets, jewellery and paintings. The design appears to have been introduced to Europe by the East India Company who brought back cashmere shawls and silk cloth which were copied. From 1800 onwards the weavers of paisley became premier producers of these shawls. the way we hold our bodies. “New trends such as asymmetric hemlines, oversized sleeves and hoods, and heavy jewellery can also create problems. Large hoods can mean you strain your neck to see, and asymmetric hemlines can restrict your movement and cause you to walk differently.” Skinny jeans reduce your mobility “even if it’s just walking that you’re doing”, Mr Hutchful said. High heels and backless shoes were also a problem.
